Free online tax help for military members and their families
Military personnel who want free federal tax return filing have several options, including the Department of Defense’s MilTax and the IRS Free File program, which offers online tax preparation, electronic filing and direct deposit of refunds at no cost.
MilTax includes tax preparation and electronic filing software, personalized support from tax consultants and current information about filing taxes. It’s designed to address the realities of military life – including deployments, combat and training pay, housing and rentals and multi-state filings. Eligible taxpayers can use MilTax to electronically file a federal tax return and up to three state returns for free.
IRS Free File
Taxpayers who made $73,000 or less in 2022 will likely find an offer from a Free File provider that matches their needs. Some providers also offer free state return preparation.
Taxpayers can go to the IRS Free File webpage at IRS.gov/freefile to find the right IRS Free File offer for them.
Once the taxpayer chooses a provider, they can follow the link to the provider’s webpage to complete and file their tax return. Free File’s guided preparation software can help taxpayers calculate things like their earned income tax credit and the child and dependent care credit.
